See a prototype of Detroit’s ten-foot-tall Robocop statue before it’s cast in bronze

In 2011, Twitter user MT suggested to Detroit Mayor Dave Bing that a statue of Robocop would make a “great ambassador” for Detroit. From that seed of an idea, the “Detroit Needs Robocop” project raised over $60,000 through Kickstarter to actually build a life-sized or larger replica of one of the city’s most famous icons. After two years of planning, scanning, and fabrication, the project’s creators have posted pictures of a ten-foot-tall Robocop prototype, ready to be cast in bronze and set up in the city.
